About This Show

“Infinitely more successful than Saturday Night Live” — New Haven Advocate

Cats Talk Back is a mock talk-back with five “former cast members” of the Broadway smash-hit, Cats. In a unique, informal interactive chat with the audience, these “cats” dare to tell all about the making of a legend. Come hear the stories behind the make-up, see dance numbers that were “too hot” for Broadway, and experience the true meaning of the words, “now and forever.” The show also features a SURPRISE GUEST panel moderator!

All events and characters depicted in the play are pure fiction. Cats Talk Back does not engage in animal testing, nor do they discriminate based on genus, kingdom or species.
